Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) has quickly become a worldwide health crisis, testing healthcare systems and having an unexpected adverse impact on acute care settings, including ST Elevation Myocardial Infarction (STEMI).

In particular, a worldwide fall in AMI hospitalizations has been observed during the COVID-19 pandemic. There may be many reasons for this trend.

We invite authors to submit experimental, clinical, and epidemiological studies, as well as reviews, to this Special Issue, Topics should focus on but not be limited to the following aspects that are relevant to the relationship between STEMI and COVID-19,

- prevalence data;

- epidemiological data and common risk factors;

-common biological pathways, such as inflammatory responses, procoagulant profile, endothelial dysfunction, myocardial injury, plaque instability;

-epidemiological features in relation to the disease severity and mortality increased by cardiovascular co-morbidities in the elderly;

- clinical findings related to the reduction in patient admissions following containment initiatives—the modified scenario of coronary reperfusion treatments and reorganized aspects in health care;

- available prognostic data.
